Big-shot executive Robert Stiles' car is damaged when parked at the lodge. Stiles takes Red Green and the other lodge members to court, forcing them to come up with $10,000 in damages in ten days - or else lose their beloved Possum Lodge. Red and the boys embark on a road trip across the country, en route to a Duct Tape Festival in the USA, where they intend to win first prize by creating a sculpture made of at least 50% duct tape.

In the establishing shot of the duct tape contest, John Phillip Sousa's "Liberty Bell" march can be heard playing in the background. The march is best known as the theme song to the British sketch comedy Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969). See more »
It's hard to motivate these guys. Most of them are married so they've been tricked before.

After the credits finish, there's a scene with Red and Harold in the van. Red says that saving the lodge will make the world a better place and Harold asks if he really believes that. Then the director yells cut. See more »
Being this never came to my local theater, I figured that I would have to wait for it to come out on video. As luck would have it, out local PBS station played it, and I loved it.
Red, and his buddies are trying to save Possum Lodge by winning third place in a duct tape contest. Of course, the fun was getting to the contest. I was a little disappointed though that some of the characters that I like weren't in it, like Hap, the ferry boat captain who is the biggest liar one could meet, or Douggie, the guy who thought his monster truck is a symbol of his manhood.
That aside, I enjoyed it very much. Like the t.v. show, it is a good poke of fun of the male ego.
